Driver's licence in Russia

Do you want to drive in Russia? The guide will help you find out more on driving requirements in the country, exchanging your national driver's licence or getting an international driver's licence.

How to drive in Russia

Driving in Russia is considered to be a real challenge. But skilled drivers can still manage, provided they have a valid driver's license and they are aware of road traffic regulations. In fact, Russian roads are known for their poor condition and lack of maintenance. What's more, only a minority of drivers actually sit the exam, with many paying to receive their license without learning how to drive. This is why travelling by public means of transport is recommended for foreigners who have just settled in the country.
